Hi!

I just went today to SWISS home page to see their fleet and I matched the numbers with my SWISS timetable I got during my latest flight with SWISS and it looks that some airliners already left SWISS, lets see:

MD11 - In the timetable there were 13, now they have 12, what was the one that left?

A321 - In the timetable there were 8, now they have 6, what were the ones that left?

A320 - In the tometable there were 17, now they have 12, what were the ones that left?

I wait any feedback specially from our swiss enthusiasts.
Regards

Maybe the missing MD11 is the one in S Africa?

Swiss is cutting a lot of flights so they are obviously grounding aircraft, I just saw that in www.justplanes.com. They didn't say they were grounding aircraft but I figured myself they must be doing so, after reading about all the destinations they are either cutting or reducing weekly frequency.
About the MD-11, I think you're right. The one missing must be the one grounded in Johannesburg. They were thinking of ordering A340's but they probably won't buy any because they are not in a good situation.

Not only were Swiss thinking of ordering A340s, they actually did order them. The first are due to be delivered this summer (last I heard). They are meant to replace the MD11s. Their website had a large gallery of quicktime 360 degree views of the interiors to be introduced with the A340 last time I checked, along with a timetable of arival for aircraft, reg numbers, and aircraft names (all are named after Swiss mountains).

They do already have several A340-300E's on firm order... be tough to cancel those at this point.

One A321 (HB-IOA) has just recently been withdrawn from use and is stored at ZRH with an all white fin and no titles. HB-IOH is temporarily stored at ZRH but will be put back into service as soon as HB-IOB is taken off the services.

A320 HB-IJT has just recently been sold to Air Luxor as CS-TQD, the remaining A320's of Swiss Int'l, however, are still flying.

MD-11 HB-IWR has been impounded at JNB since October 2001 but will return to ZRH in early May for being prepared to go into storage at MHV. There was another MD-11 flying for Swiss Int'l which left for the desert a few months ago. I think it was HB-IWH, but need to check that.

Cheers

IWH was spotted at MHV in December ... I think there also was a thread about it here, as it was ferried on SR flightnumber .. not LX.

Embraer 145 HB-JAX has been seen in Shannon painted in JetMagic (new Irish airline) colours.

Since the Swiss reg. has been kept, people are presuming the airline will start operating under Swiss' AOC and with Swiss pilots. Can anyone confirm?

Is it not just to keep the original registration until the paperwork and insurance policy has officially changed hands? Just my two cents...

Could be, however JetMagic are starting flights on the 28th and are still far from an AOC apparently.

Does anyone know what type of lease this is? Swiss leasing to Jetmagic? Swiss plane back to the leasing company and then leased to Jetmagic?

Another EMB-145, HB-JAY, will go to JetMagic on lease. Apparently it's a wet lease until 31st May, then a dry lease (till when?)
